Ang Lee: A Visionary Director Comes Face-To-Face With 3D’s Dimming Prospects

Ang Lee: A Visionary Director Comes Face-To-Face With 3D’s Dimming Prospects
Exclusive: Disappointment was written all over the face of filmmaker Ang Lee last week as he walked through a Los Angeles restaurant peering into the dimly lit corners in search of his waiting audience. The audience, in this case, was an interviewer eager talk to the three-time Oscar winner about his latest project, Gemini Man, the Paramount Pictures and Skydance Media production that opens Thursday with ambitions that go beyond the usual box-office imperatives.

With his 13th feature film, Ang Lee is trying to save 3D and reinvent it at the same time. Most directors have passion projects but Lee is a visionary pursuing a passion projection. It’s a pursuit that began with his brilliant Life of Pi (2012), continued with Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk (2016), and probably won’t stop with Gemini Man.

The quest has been fascinating at times but frustrating throughout. The latest frustration arrived in

Ang Lee Is Determined To Show “Brainwashed” Audiences That High Frame Rate Films Are The Future

When you look at the filmography of Ang Lee, it paints a bit of a confusing picture. The Oscar-winning director has done everything from “Sense and Sensibility” and “Lust, Caution” to “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon” and “Hulk.” And lately, he’s gone from prestige dramas to technological experiments, with films like “Life of Pi,” “Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk,” and the forthcoming “Gemini Man.”

But not all of these films have been very well received, particularly when you look at ‘Billy Lynn,’ which utilized high frame rate (Hfr) technology and 3D to present a drama that was ultimately viewed as a letdown for fans of Lee.

Ang Lee: 'I know I'm gonna get beat up. But I have to keep trying'

The celebrated film-maker’s new film pits Will Smith against his much-younger clone – a reverie on the ageing of both the star and the director

You haven’t seen nerves until you’ve met Ang Lee on the day his new film receives its world premiere. This is Gemini Man, a frantic thriller in which Will Smith plays an assassin hunted by his own younger clone; where there’s a Will, there’s another Will, you might say. Parts of the picture were shot in Budapest, and it is here that the 64-year-old film-maker shuffles into a hotel suite overlooking the Danube. “Everything feels harder than you can imagine right now,” he sighs, sinking into an armchair. He picks up a glass from the table in front of him, then puts it down again. “Even lifting that was hard.”

He doesn’t carry himself today like one of the most celebrated film-makers of all time,

Emmy episode analysis: Emma Thompson (‘SNL’) gives a mother of a performance as first-time host

Emmy episode analysis: Emma Thompson (‘SNL’) gives a mother of a performance as first-time host
After decades in the industry, Emma Thompson finally hosted her first episode of “Saturday Night Live” this year. Now, as one would expect from an award-winning actress of her caliber, she is nominated at the Emmys for her hosting stint. The actress is no stranger to the Emmys, now racking up seven nominations and one win. She received her first Emmy in 1998 for guest-starring as herself on “Ellen.” She won two Academy Awards in the ’90s, one for her performance in “Howards End” and the other for writing the screenplay to “Sense and Sensibility.” Will Thompson add another trophy to her collection this year?

Sanditon review – every period drama box is ticked

It’s clear where Andrew Davies takes over from Jane Austen in this adaptation of her unfinished novel

It is a truth recently acknowledged that Andrew Davies, grandfather of the sexed-up British period drama, used all the existing material from Jane Austen’s final novel in the first half hour of his adaptation of Sanditon (ITV). This – the one most of us haven’t read, and which has never before been adapted for the screen – is the fragment Austen abandoned unfinished in March 1817. She died four months later, leaving behind 11 chapters of a strange fiction about encroaching modernity in the industrial age and, more specifically, a seaside resort on the Sussex coast.

So for once we slip into the ease and comfort of a Sunday night period drama knowing precisely where the author’s words end and the adaptor’s imagination takes flight. Say 24 minutes in, as our lively and

‘Last Christmas’ Trailer Debuts – Featuring The Music Of George Michael

Universal/YouTube

It may be a few months until the Yuletide season is upon us, but that doesn’t mean Universal Pictures is going to hold back on treating you to one of their big festive movies for 2019. Last Christmas is a new romantic comedy from director Paul Feig that features the music of the late George Michael – hence the title.

Synopsis: Kate (Emilia Clarke) harumphs around London, a bundle of bad decisions accompanied by the jangle of bells on her shoes, another irritating consequence from her job as an elf in a year-round Christmas shop. Tom (Henry Golding) seems too good to be true when he walks into her life and starts to see through so many of Kate’s barriers. As London transforms into the most wonderful time of the year, nothing should work for these two. But sometimes, you gotta let the snow fall where it may,

Will Smith Faces His Younger Self in Second Trailer for Ang Lee’s ‘Gemini Man’

Ang Lee has proven time and time again that his work cannot be so easily categorized. From directing a Jane Austen period picture (Sense and Sensibility) to a masterpiece of wuxia cinema to crafting one of the most heart wrenching romantic dramas of the early 2000s with Brokeback Mountain to pushing technology with his last few projects, the director has never shied away the unknown.

This defiance of being pigeonholed into one particular type of film is on full display again in the new trailer for Gemini Man, which finds the director working in 120 frames per second and 3D. In Ang Lee’s second foray into action and science-fiction since his ill-fated Hulk film, Will Smith plays an elite assassin who discovers that an operative who can counter his every move and is trying to eliminate him is a younger clone version of himself. Smith is joined by Mary Elizabeth Winstead,

Emmys 2019 slugfest: Will the comedy guest acting races reward ‘Veep’ and ‘Big Bang Theory’ or will ‘SNL’ dominate once again? [Watch]
Gold Derby contributor Luca Giliberti declares that Peter MacNicol will return to the Emmy race for his guest turn on “Veep” because he thinks the HBO political comedy will have a stellar showing in its final season. “When a show is much stronger across the board, it translates in these guest categories,” he explains. The fact that his 2016 nomination in the category was infamously rescinded will also “help him,” he adds. Giliberti recently joined me and Riley Chow to dish those highly competitive Comedy Guest Acting categories. Watch our full slugfest above.

Oscars invite 842 new members in 2019: Complete list by branch (and 2014-2018 totals too)

Oscars invite 842 new members in 2019: Complete list by branch (and 2014-2018 totals too)
This year, the motion picture academy made history by inviting an equal number of women and men to join. In all, 842 film professionals were invited to become part of the organization that hands out the Oscars. Compare this intake to the totals of the previous five years: a record 928 in 2018; 774 in 2017; 683 in 2016; 322 in 2015; and 271 in 2014.

While Academy Awards nominees are automatically eligible for consideration, the rest of the candidates must go through a fairly cumbersome process. A candidate must meet certain branch specific requirements before even being eligible.

For example, actors must “have a minimum of three theatrical feature film credits, in all of which the roles played were scripted roles, one of which was released in the past five years, and all of which are of a caliber that reflect the high standards of the Academy.” For writers, directors and producers they need have just two of these credits.

The Academy Invites 842 New Members, from Lady Gaga to Jon M. Chu

The Academy Invites 842 New Members, from Lady Gaga to Jon M. Chu
In its continuing push to swell the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences membership ranks, 842 artists and executives from 59 countries have been invited to join this year. The branches have increasingly actively sought eligible people to become Academy members, but the Board of Governors makes the final call.

People of color (29 percent) and women (50 percent) are among the many invites, as the Academy continues to address its long-term white-male dominance. As always, actors make up the largest branch of the Academy, but many new members also come from overseas.

In 2018, the Academy invited 928 new members.

Twenty-one Oscar winners are among the new invited members, including Guy Nattiv (“Skin”), filmmaker Jimmy Chin (“Free Solo”), Phil Lord, and Chris Miller (“Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse”), and 82 Oscar nominees (including newbies like Lady Gaga and “Roma” breakout Marina de Tavira). Ten of the 17 branches invited more women than men. The percentage of women

Academy Reaches Gender Parity in 2019 New Member Invitations

  • Variety
Half of the 842 new members invited to join the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences are women, the group announced on Monday.

The organization behind the Oscars also disclosed that 29% of the new invitees are people of color. Should those people accept, and they almost universally do, the Academy will have doubled the percentage of nonwhite people in their ranks in four years.

In 2015, people of color accounted for only 8% of the Academy body. In 2019, it stands at 16%, the Academy reported. As it stands, the Academy counts 8,946 active members, with 8,733 eligible to vote on the Oscars. The total membership including retired members is 9,794. This year’s number falls short of 2018’s record of 928 invitations.

New members in this round include “Crazy Rich Asians” director Jon Chu, actors Winston Duke and Gemma Chan, and screenwriters Ritesh Batra (“Photograph”), Chinonye Chukwu (“Clemency”), Park Young-soo (“Detective Dee”) and Ryo Sakaguchi (“Ant-Man and the Wasp

Motion Picture Academy Adds 842 New Members, Half Of Whom Are Women

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has invited 842 new members in their annual effort to bring in new blood to the organization that hands out the Oscars. This is down from the 928 members invited last year, but 50% of this year’s number are women, inching closer to the goal of creating an even playing field between female and male members. It marks an 7% increase in female members from 2015 to an overall 32% of the entire organization.

A total of 29% of the new class revealed Monday are people of color, marking an 8% increase in that statistic since 2015. Among the new invitees, 21 are already Oscar winners and 82 are past Oscar nominees.

New members among the acting branch include recent Best Song winner Lady Gaga, who is also being invited to the music branch; Sterling K. Brown; Claire Foy; and actors ranging in age from 23-year-old Spider-Man Tom Holland to the (shamefully) never-nominated legendary French star,
